Students protest Public Lands Initiative

PHOTO BY Morgan Pratt Valentina Begay, the Native American Student Council Event Coordinator, tells Rob Bishop that her organization stands for clean air, clean water and respecting nature at a meeting on Oct. 18.

By Thomas Sorenson MANAGING EDITOR

As Rob Bishop’s beloved Chicago Cubs were preparing for a critical showdown against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, the incumbent congressional representative from Utah’s First District was addressing a group of roughly 100 people at a public forum on the Utah State campus. “Are there any Dodgers fans in here? You can leave,” Bishop joked at the beginning of his appearance. Though the lone Dodger fan did not take the invitation to leave, nearly 30 others in attendance did walk out later in the presentation as part of a protest against Bishop’s Public Lands Initiative. “It was just to get our voices heard,” said Denishia Tsosie, the vice president of the Native American Student Council. “We want to protect our land.” The protest was not organized nor officially supported by the NASC. Many

members of the group were involved in the walkout, however. Near the middle of Bishop’s presentation, a member of the audience interrupted Bishop and began reading from a piece of paper. “We as voters of District One stand for clean air, clean water, respecting nature and we stand in solidarity with Utah’s indigenous people,” read Valentina Begay, the NASC activities coordinator. “And you, sir, do not.” The group then followed Begay out the door of the Alumni House, where the event was being held. “I just decided to stand up for the people,” Begay said later. “I chose to do this and I feel good about it. I don’t feel any shame, I didn’t say anything bad. I just listed the facts.” “They said they supported indigenous rights and actually so do I, even though they claimed I didn’t,” Bishop said after the forum. “But that’s OK, you can say what you want I guess.”

“There are some groups I’ve found who simply don’t have any reason to compromise or don’t want to,” Bishop said later. “I’ve also had some people on the other side that are so distrustful of government because they have been basically deceived at times so they don’t want to do anything as well. I recognize the frustration on both levels.” Though the protest was the most notable occurrence during Bishop’s speech, he spent most of the half-hour presentation discussing the role of federalism and House speaker Paul Ryan’s “A Better Way” initiative, which addresses the delineation of congressional powers. “The Constitution is asking us to do what the Bible says we can’t,” Bishop said. “The Bible says you can’t have two masters and that’s exactly what the Constitution is asking us to do. You’re to be loyal to the national government and at the same time you need to be loyal to the state. “That’s dual sovereignty and it is diffi-

cult to accomplish and it will always be in conflict.” In discussing the importance of state and federal powers being separated, Bishop shared a story of a German woman who was able to shop in West Berlin for the first time after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The woman, then a young girl, was amazed at how many kinds of sugar was available to buy. “That’s what freedom means. It’s having eight different kinds of sugar,” Bishop said. “It’s the choice that’s significant. That’s what federalism is about.” “Federalism is not liberal or conservative, it’s not Republican or Democrat,” Bishop said. “It simply says people should have the right to choose.” The event was hosted by USU’s Institute of Government and Politics. — thomas.sorenson@aggiemail.usu.edu @tomcat340

New swing dance class offered By Mariah Halling NEWS WRITER

A new contra dance class is coming to USU starting on Oct. 24. The one-credit PE 1700 class (CRN 56120) will be offered for seven weeks, Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Health, Physical Education and Recreation building, room 211. The class, which will be taught by Logan community member Kay Forsyth, requires no prior experience or dance training. Contra dance is a lively style of dance where the participants move in long lines, and break up into pairs and small groups. Contra, which is also called New England style country dance, has its roots in the British Isles, and is often danced to live Celtic-style music. The discipline requires a caller, or someone who gives directions to the dancers throughout the class. “The style is similar to something you

might see in a Jane Austen movie. There’s a lot of ‘do-si-dos’ and circle formations,” Forsyth said. The new contra class will be a part of the Lifetime Activities Program, which currently has 573 students enrolled in 19 sections of dance classes. The program offers dance classes in multiple disciplines, such as ballet, western swing, ballroom, hip hop and jazz. Peter Mathesius, the head of the program, is optimistic about the new contra class. “[The new class] will provide opportunities for students to gain experience in a new discipline, as well as socialize and have fun,” Mathesius said. Forsyth, who Mathesius describes as a “dance enthusiast,” has a long history in dance. Her experience reaches back to more than 20 years ago, and she has previously taught an international folk dance class on campus. Forsyth first became involved in contra

when she attended a workshop in Salt Lake City. Since then, she has been a leader in multiple projects, such as teaching elementary school students contra dance for the Utah Centennial Celebration, and travelling to Chile and China to teach American folk dances. Forsyth also teaches a monthly contra class at the Whittier Community Center that is open to the general public. Additionally, Forsyth guest taught in Stephanie White’s history of social dance class. White, who is an adjunct professor within the theatre department, described Forsyth as “amazing,” and shared that her students wanted Forsyth to come back and teach more contra classes. “I love teaching beginners,” Forsyth said, “you can see the results and improvement very quickly.” Forsyth said students should take the class because all it can apply to all students.

“There’s something for everyone within this style,” Forsyth said. “It’s perfect for people who are social, and I’ve also noticed that math and engineering students really enjoy it because of its emphasis on shapes and patterns.” White agreed. “It’s really an integrative course. There’s elements of history, math, physical education, as well as a social aspect. It will expand your overall knowledge.” White also said that in a world where so much of our social interaction is virtual, it’s very refreshing to be able to interact with people face to face in a fun, safe environment. “Also, there’s nothing better than doing a jig,” White said. — hallingmariah1@gmail.com

No fee for boots removed late, city says By Shanie Howard SENIOR NEWS WRITER

On Tuesday night, after a month-long battle with city officials, police and local businesses, the Logan City Council unanimously passed a new ordinance that requires booting companies to remove auto boots within one hour OF being contacted or take the boot off for free. Booting companies have expressed displeasure about this change. Cache Auto Booting Service manager Dennis Shaw has even gone as far as to threaten to stop booting cars altogether and instead start towing them. Logan police officer Bret Randall does not believe that Shaw’s threat is one that should be taken seriously. “I don’t know if there’s enough tow trucks to handle the amount of boots put on,” Randall said. Holly Daines, a Logan City Council Member, said she believes this was the best decision. “If they have to wait 60 minutes, then they don’t have to pay,” she said. If the booting company fails to remove the boot after one hour, the $75 fee to remove the boot

will be waived. Despite the council’s confidence with this change, Chief of Police Gary Jensen still has some concerns. Jensen explained that if the booting company does not comply with this policy change and still requires a $75 fee to be paid, the police cannot step in other than to try to keep the peace. The person disputing the charge must take their case to a small case court and file a suit that costs $60. Jensen is concerned that students won’t have enough money to be able to make their case in court. Regardless of his concerns, Jensen encourages students to stand up for themselves by prosecuting booting companies who don’t comply to this new change. “The problem is nothing ever gets solved if there are legitimate issues in regards to improper booting if the kids aren’t willing to stand up for themselves,” Jensen said. The council has agreed that after six months they will review how well the change is going and make a decision on whether to keep it or make more changes. — shaniehoward214@gmail.com

STUDENT LIFE

Meet your senator: Nadir of the Business School By Jason Crummitt STUDENT LIFE WRITER

Utah State University’s business senator Nadir

Tekarli is a Gryffindor, with the occasional dive

into Slytherin, whose spirit animal is the stallion.

Tekarli is a Logan native majoring in economics

and accounting, though he will say he is from Sandy to showcase some diversity. He isn’t above

First impressions of Tekarli are that of a high

executive businessman. However, he has the

charm and demeanor of a sophisticate that can easily put everyone at ease in the room. For Nadir, the business school is an obvious fit.

“I was just going to go for it see what hap-

Women’s soccer falls in standings

Aggies suffer back-to-back conference losses, drop from first to fourth

PHOTO BY Kyle Todecheene The Aggies dropped a pair of road games over the weekend, losing the conference’s top spot and falling to 5-3. Utah State has three games remaining on its regular season schedule. By Sean Coghlan SPORTS STAFF WRITER

Looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses over the weekend, the Utah State women’s soccer team looks to get back on track at home hosting the Nevada Wolf pack this weekend. The Aggies, now 5-3-0 in conference play, fell from first to fourth in Mountain West Conference ranking. Nevada is currently ranked No. 11 in the conference, one game ahead of last place. This will be the last home game of the season, and seven seniors will be cherishing

their last game on the Chuck and Gloria Bell field. “We’re going to have some different emotions because it’s senior night,” said head coach Heather Cairns. “It’s really the culmination of seven fantastic players who have played here and that will be emotional.” Senior day only adds to the final home matchup’s stakes, as USU searches to right itself with only three regular season games remaining. Over the weekend, the Aggies played University of New Mexico and San Diego State, losing both matches. It is just the second losing streak of the season and the first of conference

play. Cairns said the team could have played more sharply and will be working this weekend on keeping the ball better. “Possession is directly correlated with scoring opportunities,” Cairns said. Nevada is coming off of a 1-1 weekend, first beating Colorado College before losing to Air Force. When the Aggies played these two teams in a Colorado road trip, there was a mirror result — Utah State beat Air Force before losing to Colorado College. Before the 0-2 weekend, the Aggies pair of home wins. The victorious weekend was capped off by senior forward Jessica Brooksby earning

player of the week for the MW conference. Last year’s match between Nevada and Utah State saw the Wolf pack sweep the Aggies 3-0 in Reno. “They’re a quality opponent,” Cairns said. “We just have to control what we can control.” Utah State’s final home game takes place on Friday at 3 p.m. at Chuck and Gloria Bell Field. The Aggies then head out onto the road to visit first place University of Nevada Las Vegas, before taking on Boise State the following weekend. — sdcoghlan@yahoo.com

Utah State volleyball to face SDSU, UNR at home

The Utah State volleyball team will finish up its four-game homestand this weekend when it faces San Diego State and Nevada in the Wayne Estes center on Thursday and Saturday. The homestand began on Thursday when they beat New Mexico three sets to one for the first time since joining the Mountain West Conference. At that game, the Aggies had a combined 67 digs — Hannah Gleason leading with 20 of her own — which all helped in

their fundraiser for breast cancer research. The team hit at a match-high of 73 percent that game an increased their overall record to 8-10, 3-4 in conference. The Aggies then lost a heartbreaker to UNLV in five sets on Saturday. They had a combined 70 digs and hit at 71 percent at their high, but still fell to the Rebels in the final set, 15-13. Coming off a strong week, these next two matches against sixth-place SDSU and fifthplace Nevada will be crucial to USU’s standings in the conference. “I think that our team feels good,” said head

coach Grayson DuBose. “We feel like we are just right there and will get over the hump soon. This is a really positive group of people.” The Aztecs defeated the Aggies earlier this year in San Diego in a 3-2 match. Overall they are hitting .216 as a team and their setter, Indigo Thompson, as well as their outside hitter, Alexandra Psoma will be on the radar of Utah State going into Thursday’s match at 7 p.m. USU was one of the only two conference teams to give Nevada a loss this season when they faced each other earlier this season exactly a month ago from their match this Saturday.

The Aggies will look to continue their trend of victory over the Wolf Pack, which is 5-3 in the MWC. “We feel like each match is an opportunity to learn and grow,” DuBose said. “That is how we approach this weekend and each time we play.” Even though DuBose is treating it like any other match, this week’s stakes are high for him and his team — wins this weekend could increase their chances at a spot in the conference tournament next month. — paige.a.cavaness@aggiemail.usu.edu

Battle of the beatens First conference win on the line as Utah State clashes with Fresno By Taylor Emerson SPORTS STAFF WRITER

In terms of redemption, it’s time. The bottom line for Saturday’s matchup is either the last place Bulldogs or the second-to-last place Aggies will notch their first Mountain West victory of the season. Both teams will need to keep from beating themselves in order to put that single digit in the win column. The Bulldogs have been dreadful offensively this season, finding themselves at the bottom of the MW in points per game, rushing yards per game, passing efficiency and third down conversion percentage. In addition, the Tim DeRuyter-led group has been on the losing end of the turnover margin at minus seven — averaging two turnovers a game while only notching five takeaways. However, the stat that may widen Matt Wells’ eyes the most is Fresno’s conference-worst rushing defense, allowing 275 yards per game to opposing runners. Against Colorado State, the Aggies’ running game was resurrected to true form. Kent Myers’ keepers slashed the Rams’ defensive front, Tonny Lindsey’s cleats melted the Rams’ turf field as the game wound down and Gerold Bright even found paydirt on a 41-yard burst. Fresno’s defensive woes grow even more intriguing when

considering the possible return of Utah State’s backfield stud Devante Mays. Since injuring his knee against USC, Mays has missed four straight games, but now fresh off a much-needed bye week, Mays might be ready to suit up. “The bye week helps everybody,” head coach Matt Wells said when asked about the 230-pound senior’s status on Monday. “I’m not a doctor, but everybody’s healthier from this week... Obviously, he is one of our better players and we’ll see if we get him back this week or not.” If Mays is not cleared, Tonny Lindsey will once again be the Aggies’ No. 1 option at running back, a role in which the junior has thrived. To the Bulldogs and Aggie fans alike, Utah State’s weakness so far this season is painfully clear. In its last three matchups, Utah State has zero points in the third phase of play, and in the most recent case the lack of second-half points led to a blown two-score lead. Against Boise State and Air Force, the Aggie defense held firm, stifling offensive drives as best as possible and setting up Kent Myers and company with opportunity after opportunity. The offense didn’t capitalize. After some retooling for the Rams matchup, it was the offense that caught fire, moving the ball with ease and trusting the defense to make the necessary stops. That time, the defense didn’t respond. For Wells, it’s no time to panic. “Yeah, there are tweaks, but I don’t think they’re wholesale changes.” Wells said. “For a coach to do that right now at this point in the season unless there were major, major issues and unless somebody wants to prove that or ask that to me, they’re losses.” Utah State ranks 10th in the MW for scoring offense, last in first down conversions and its defense is surrendering 20 of 21 red zone tries for points. That being said, USU’s defense still ranks as the third best in the conference — a unit with 12 sacks, six takeaways and No. 4 in the MW for opponent third down conversion. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30, so the winner won’t be decided until the wee hours of Sunday morning. The game will also be televised on the CBS Sports Network. — emerson.taylor411@gmail.com

State your case: Should Major League Baseball shorten its season? By Daniel Hansen SPORTS STAFF WRITER

NO

Yes, the MLB season is long, but it needs to be. 162 games are necessary to determine if teams are legitimately good or legitimately bad. We view the Cubs as being miles ahead of a team like the Twins, but in reality, the Cubs only won two more games than the Twins out of every eight games this year. That’s a close enough spectrum that if the season were reduced to even 80 games, chance events might favor a lesser team making the playoffs in place

of a better, more deserving team. If the season had ended this year on June 15 after about 65 games, the Dodgers wouldn’t have made the playoffs and Cleveland would have needed to win a tiebreaker with the Royals to be included. Baseball is a game where even the best of hitters succeed only three times out of 10, and teams usually need to string multiple hits together in order to score. In order to eliminate the factors of luck and chance, the full 162game schedule is necessary in order to determine who the best teams in the league are.

YES

By Jaden Johnson SPORTS STAFF WRITER

The Major League Baseball season is entirely too long. I mean, come on, 162 games per season? Even as someone who loves watching baseball, a four hour long 1-0 baseball game in mid-May between two teams playing game number 46 out of 162 is incredibly difficult to get invested in. If the team I’m cheering for wins, great. If they lose, whatever, they’ve got six more games this week. This is one of the things that makes college football so great, you

can’t just shrug off a loss. One loss can dramatically alter your season, so every game is that much more important. The MLB postseason is one of my favorite events in all of sports because of this same reason. Every game matters a ton, so you get high-quality, high-intensity baseball that even casual fans can enjoy. Of course, I’m not suggesting that the season be cut down to the size of a football season, but I think cutting it in half, or even down to 100 games, could dramatically increase the number of people paying attention to the regular season and give the fans a less “watered down” product.

Clinton, Trump battle in final debate By Julie Pace & Lisa Lerer ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Threatening to upend a fundamental pillar of American democracy, Donald Trump refused to say Wednesday night that he will accept the results of next month’s election if he loses to Hillary Clinton. The Democratic nominee declared Trump’s resistance “horrifying.” Trump had spent the days leading up to the third and final presidential debate warning voters that the election would be “rigged.” Asked whether he would accept the outcome if Clinton emerges victorious, he said, “I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense.” Trump’s assertions raise the prospect that millions of his supporters may not accept the results on Nov. 8 if he loses, thrusting the nation into uncharted territory. Free and fair elections, with the vanquished peacefully stepping aside for the victor, have been the underpinning of America’s democratic tradition since the country’s founding 240 years ago. The Republican National Committee immediately disavowed Trump’s statement. There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud, and election officials across the country have denied and denounced Trump’s charges. Wednesday’s contest quickly shifted from a calm, policy-focused faceoff into a bitter and deeply personal confrontation. Trump called Clinton a “nasty woman,” while the Democrat panned him as “unfit” to be commander in chief. Clinton, who began the debate with a lead in nearly all battleground states, forcefully accused Trump of favoring Russia’s leader over American military and intelligence experts after the Republican nominee pointedly refused to accept the U.S. government’s assertion that Moscow has sought to meddle in the U.S. election. She charged that Russian President Vladimir Putin was backing Trump because “he’d rather have a puppet as president of the United States.” Trump denied any relationship with Putin and said he would condemn any foreign interference in the election. But he notably declined to back the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia was involved in the hacking of Democratic organizations. The Clinton campaign has said the FBI also is investigating Russia’s involvement in the hacking of a top adviser’s emails. The 90-minute contest in Las Vegas came just

under three weeks before Election Day and with early voting underway in more than 30 states. Trump has struggled to expand his support beyond his most loyal backers and must reshape the race in its closing days if he hopes to defeat Clinton. The candidates clashed repeatedly over their drastically different visions for the nation’s future. Trump backed Supreme Court justices who would overturn the landmark Roe vs. Wade ruling, while Clinton vowed to appoint justices that would uphold the decision legalizing abortion, saying, “We have come too far to have that turned back now.” The businessman entered the final debate facing a string of sexual assault accusations from women who came forward after he denied in the previous contest that he had kissed or groped women without their consent. That Trump denial followed the release of a video of in which he’s heard bragging about exactly that. Trump denied the accusations anew Wednesday night, saying the women coming forward “either want fame or her campaign did it.” He falsely said the women’s allegations had been debunked. Clinton said Trump “thinks belittling women makes him bigger. He goes after their dignity, their self-worth.” She avoided answering a question about her husband’s infidelities. Trump pressed Clinton on immigration, accusing her of wanting an “open borders” policy, a characterization she vigorously disputes. The Republican, who has called for building a wall the length of the U.S.-Mexico border, blamed some “bad hombres here” for drug epidemics around the country, and promised “we’re going to get ‘em out.” Clashing on trade, Trump said Clinton had misrepresented her position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, noting that she had originally called it the “gold standard” of trade agreements. Clinton shot back that once the deal was finished, it didn’t meet her standards. “I’m against it now. I’ll be against after the election. I’ll be against it when I’m president,” she said. Both were asked if they would consider tax increases or benefit cuts to support Social Security and Medicare programs. Trump said he would cut taxes and repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, but he did not detail any plans for Social Security or other entitlement programs. Clinton said she would put more money in the Social Security trust fund through increasing

taxes on the wealthy and other methods and promised not to cut benefits. She also argued that the Affordable Care Act has extended the solvency of Medicare and said she would work to bring costs down. On foreign policy, Clinton reasserted her opposition to sending a large-scale U.S. troop presence to the Middle East to defeat the Islamic State. She’s backed a no-fly zone in Syria, which would mark an expansion of the current U.S. strategy. For Trump, the debate marked one of his final chances to shift the trajectory of a race that ap-

pears to be slipping away from him. Clinton’s campaign is confidently expanding into traditionally Republican states, while Trump’s narrow electoral path is shrinking. Still, Clinton has struggled throughout the campaign to overcome persistent questions about her honesty and trustworthiness. In the campaign’s closing weeks, she’s begun appealing to Americans to overcome the deep divisions that have been exacerbated by the heated campaign, saying on stage Wednesday that she intended to be a president for those who vote for her and those who do not.

Hey, Utah — your vote actually matters Here’s the thing — for tose of us residing in

the state of Utah, this election might actually be our chance to shine. Everyone ought to believe

their vote counts for something every four years, but if I’m being honest this is the first I’ve felt mine actually carried some significant weight — and it has everything to do with the emergence of a legitimate third party candidate. For years, talk of third-party voting has

followed the same unfortunate pattern of twisted logic. First, you find yourself a year before the actual election, thinking “Gee, anybody but
